Here in West Michigan trees heavy with red apples are as much a part of fall as golden leaves and orange pumpkins. This apple coffee cake recipe is one my favorite apple recipes, but it isn’t often that I get to make it with apples picked fresh from a local orchard.
Wade and I visited Riveridge Produce recently on a beautiful autumn morning.
Riveridge provides fresh, locally grown apples to Meijer and is the largest shipper of apples in Michigan. Did you know Michigan is the 3rd biggest apple producing state?
I used some of our fresh bounty from the orchard to make this apple coffee cake recipe. If you can’t get to an orchard to pick apples, you can find locally grown apples at Meijer. They’re committed to providing customers with as much quality, locally grown produce as possible.
This apple coffee cake is perfect for a chilly fall morning. It’s easy to make and only takes 30 minutes to bake, so you can eat it warm right out of the oven with a cup of coffee. And it will make your house smell deliciously like autumn.
